Module 4 - Persuasion Design

Once the emotions are tapped, we’ll introduce you to the science of persuasion. Learn the sychological onstructs required to get your consumers to act— very time. Discover how to use pay, impression, and pressure to your advantage via: extrinsic rewards, unanticipated costs, contrast principle, social proof, social learning, the power of people we like, scarcity, and more.

Module 5 - Overview of HFI’s PET design Process

Persuasion methodology is not new, but putting it into practice is. Learn how HFI has created a persuasion process and methodology that consists of PET: assessment, testing and review, user research and design, structure, research and analysis, strategy, and validation.

Module 6 - PET–Focused Personas and Scenarios

The underpinnings of persuasion design are the tools that classic usability analysts use with a PET twist. Learn where PET personas and scenarios come from, understand persona variables, learn the differences between PET and classic scenarios and how to build PET scenarios.

Module 7 - Initial Assessment Methods

Learn how the PET test and PET review uncover data that will enable you to take what you’ve learned so far and apply it to your site. Learn how to utilize: emotional reports, video, eye tracking data, persona emotion reports, persuasion strategies, the seducible moment, and more.

In order to target your PET Tools, you’ll want to talk to your customers. In this track, you’ll get a taste of a technique used to understand the emotional landscape of your customers.

Module 10 - Validation Methods

Learn how to validate your design to see if your persuasion methods are working, if you are eliciting the desired emotions, and if your customers “will do” what you want them to do.
